Our History

Mr. Dan’s Plumbing is a family-owned and -operated business. John Daniel Carter, aka Mr. Dan, started the business in March of 2003. He has been in the industry since working with his father in the 1970s. His father also ran his own plumbing and construction business. As the demand for reliable service has increased, Mr. Dan’s business has found and filled a great need in our service area. Mr. Dan is a licensed gas fitter and Master Plumber. He also has certifications for backflow and cross-connection systems and liquefied petroleum gas. From one man and a truck, Mr. Dan built his company from the ground up.

After returning from active-duty service with the US Army, Mr. Dan’s son, Joshua Lee Carter joined his father, serving the needs of their community. Before being deployed to support the efforts of Operation Iraqi Freedom, Joshua worked as his father’s helper. He later ran his own service truck after becoming licensed as a Journeyman Plumber in July of 2002.  Joshua is a Master Plumber and gas fitter, he also has certifications from the Alabama Onsite Wastewater Board as an Advanced Level I Septic/Grease System Installer.
